New electric car housings made from Baydur


Integeam, a Spain-based electrical equipment manufacturing firm, is using Baydur polyurethane foam from Bayer MaterialScience (BMS) to manufacture charging stations for electric cars.
Nair Oleagagoitia, spokesperson for Integeam, says it chose Baydur 110 rigid polyurethane foam because of its high mechanical resistance.
“It is easily mouldable, even in high thicknesses, and is recyclable,” she told European Plastics News. “It also admits flame retardant V0 or UV (ultraviolet) additives.”
Integeam has so far installed 500 prototypes at Spanish supermarkets, parking garages and conference centres. There are currently 2,000 electric vehicles in use in Spain, said Oleagagoitia.
There are two types of the charging stations, which are manufactured by Policam, also based in Spain. One charging station is designed for outdoor use and the other is wall-mounted in private homes.
